Aldi’s egg chair has caused a massive stir on social media and among bargain hunters over the past month.

The bargain garden piece has been dropped twice by the supermarket and people have been snapping them up extremely quick.

In fact, thousands of people have been queuing on the website trying to get a chance to buy one.

The chair, which only cost £149, was too good to refuse for some Brits whereas most egg chairs retail between £250 and £400.

However, it seems some people have been attempting to make a quick buck on eBay as some people have been flogging them on the auction site.

One has 12 bids and a current price of £260 and another has 16 bids and has reached as much as £245.

With “buy now” items on eBay, there’s no guarantee someone will be willing to pay that price.

When it comes to auctions, prices can climb as bidders throw their hats into the ring until it ends and the item goes to the highest bidder.

Furious Aldi customers who missed out on getting the egg chair took to social media to share their disappointment. 

One shopper said: “Looking to buy an Aldi egg chair today. I got to number 1.3 million in the queue.”

And another tweeted: “Woke up at 6.30 to get myself and Aldi egg chair, added it to my basket and the website crashed, now they’re sold out fuming”.
